Frye the Thursday Starter, Couple Players Back, Roster Cuts

Browns head coach Romeo Crennel announced on Monday that Charlie Frye will start the preseason finale at Chicago Thursday night.  However, the coach still has not named a starter for the regular season opener September 9th against Pittsburgh.  Crennel said that he has an idea of who the starter will be, but doesn’t know yet.  Derek Anderson will follow Frye, while rookie Brady Quinn could see plenty of action as it is the final exhibition game.

The team had a couple of familiar faces back on the practice field on Monday.  Guard Eric Steinbach and defensive end Orpheus Roye worked out with the club with both looking to recover from knee injuries.  Roye underwent arthroscopic knee surgery on August 1st, while Steinbach injured his right knee during practice on August 9th.  Steinbach and Roye did limited individual work before running and working with strength coaches on the side.  Both will miss the preseason finale Thursday night in Chicago, but the Browns are hoping the pair will be ready for the regular season opener on September 9th against Pittsburgh.

Also Cleveland began the process of trimming their roster on Monday by waiving 11 players.  Among those let go were receiver Efrem Hill and fullback J.R. Niklos.  The Browns need to waive one more player by 4 p.m. today to be down to the NFL mandated 75-man roster.  The Browns will have to reduce the roster to 53 players on this Saturday.
